The coming of three - a finish, a wip, a new start!
This is my finished Spring has Sprung SAL piece for April. Still have no idea how I am going to finish this one and it is my turn to choose the chart for May. I;m not quite sure what kind of chart I associate with May, maybe if they don;t get the flights back up and running I better look for one with a plane and volcano..lol.
I picked up my Happy Mood wip at the week-end and as you can see got a bit more into it than before. My little moo cow is looking kinda sweet now. I just wish blogger would show the colour of the fabric properley as it really is a nice yellow colour.
Thank you so much to everyone who has taken the time to visit my blog and leave me comments. I was so amazed to see so many people have visited on my last few posts. I really do appreciate it. I am also delighted to see that in the short time I have come back to blogging so many people have signed up to follow my blog. I might just have a giveaway if I reach the hundred mark.
I have recently just re-opened my facebook account. I am not really a big fan but one of my dear stitchy friends has gotten lost in their and even though I have done everything to entice her back to blogging the only way I know that I can find her now is by going to facebook. So if there is anyone who wants to add me to their facebook please do.
A few people have commented or asked me to see pictures of Heathers prom dress but I won;t be able to get any until we go for a fitting sometime in mid May. We are now entering the next phase of our challenge, buying the shoes. We do have the colour down to silver but no sparkly bits, no showing of feet or toes. We don;t mind a little heel but not too high. Oh joy I just can't wait for this next shopping trip..lol.
Oops I nearly forgot to show you my new start today. My son took one look at it and said What an appropriate chart for you to stitch Mum and yes I do get my broomstick out occasionally..lol.
I have had this gorgeous piece of hand-dyed fabric in my stash for a few years now and when I came across it last night I knew it would just be perfect for this. Using this fabric and also not having the weeks, gast,cc the chart recommends I am using my Dye is Cast threads.
I just started this afternoon and I am just loving it, this is a lot of progress for a slow stitcher like me. I so wish I didn;t have to work tomorrow so I could just stitch, stitch, stitch. Take Care. Hugs!
